Following last winter's Season Blanche due to the Covid-19 health crisis, Morzine continues to innovate for the winter season of 2021/2022. Find out out more details on a new red piste, a new lift at Pleney, upgraded facilities in Nyon and the seldom used Vallée de la Manche as well as a multitude of new activities on and off the pistes!
NEW A stunning new red piste!
The remodeling of the red Aigle run going from the summit of Nyon at 2019 metres down to the Nyon plateau at 1413m is now completed. The run is 3 times wider with 2km of skiing pleasure!
A new fast chairlift, the Belvédère
The Bélvèdere chairlift at the top of Pleney has undergone major upgrade works, with a new, high-speed six-seater design replacing the old four-seater, fixed clamp version. Supported by eight brand new pylons, the improved chairlift will be able to transport up to 2,800 people per hour when it re-opens this winter. Providing greater safety and comfort, the improved Bélvèdere will offer faster access to the beginner area, as well as to the more demanding pistes at Chamossière and the fun space at the Pointe de Nyon. What’s more, the departure station will have a grass covered roof, integrating it perfectly into the surrounding area.
NEW Le Pas de L’Aigle: viewing platform with excitement guaranteed!
NEW Have fun in the new Eagle Park
The Eagle Park on the Nyon slopes will be completely remodeled for winter 21-22. In this ski area the more adventurous will be able to test the new XL boarder cross starting from the top of the Raverettes chair. The reshaped and enlarged snow park will offer some new features. To use less artificial snow, the features will be created and shaped from an earth base. Air and excitement guaranteed!
NEW Falconry mornings at Nyon Plateau
NEW Night ski touring
NEW Become a ski patroller for the day
Live the life of a ski patroller for a day and have the whole ski area to yourselves You’re sure to feel the call of the wild going out in the early hours to accompany the ski patrol as they do their round of checks before opening the ski area while the rest of the resort slumbers on. Lucky participants will be the first to ski the perfectly groomed pistes. The pleasure of making first lines and discovering the work of the ski patrol is a great way of understanding both the beauty and the dangers of this environment!

Mines d’Or Experiences in Vallée de la Manche
The winter of 2020/21 and the health crisis have meant Morzine has had to innovate and think out of the box in terms of the activities and experiences it has to offer. Due to the closure of the lifts, locals created a Nordic-style area in the Vallée de la Manche. This wild setting far from the nearest lifts is the perfect backdrop for walks and making fantastic new family memories, so will remain in place for winter 21-22 and beyond! The area is equipped with an info point, a cross-country ski circuit, a snow playground, a picnic area, a sledging slope and even an igloo! A little corner of paradise for tourists and locals alike.
